Bambini senza scuola in Yemen e basi negate negli Emirati Arabi Uniti

Mentre crescono le pressioni per rimuovere il divieto di fornitura di bombe ad Arabia Saudita e Emirati Arabi Uniti, l’Unicef comuniche che, «a sei anni dall’inizio del devastante conflitto in Yemen, ancora in corso, l’istruzione dei bambini nel Paese ne è diventata una delle maggiori vittime. Poco più di 2 milioni di ragazze e ragazzi in età scolare non stanno andando a scuola, a causa della povertà» e delle altre consuenze della guerra.

Saudi Arabia, along with the United Arab Emirates and other countries, entered the war alongside Yemen’s internationally recognized government in March 2015. The war has killed some 130,000 people and driven the Arab world’s poorest country to the brink of famine.  (AP Photo, File)

Yemen has been convulsed by a civil war since 2014 when Houthis took control of the capital of Sanaa and much of the northern part of the country. That forced the government of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi to flee to the south, then to Saudi Arabia.  (AP Photo/Nariman El-Mofty)

FILE - In this July 11, 2016 file photo, Yemen born Jewish Israeli Yona Josef holds a photograph dated back to the 1940's of her and her father back in Yemen in her home in Raanana, Israel. Josef said she was asked to take her 4-year-old sister Saada to a health clinic and leave her there. When she returned several hours later, she was told her sister was dead and the family was given no further details or a body to bury. The Israeli government has approved a plan to offer $50 million in compensation to the families of hundreds of Yemenite children who disappeared in the early years of the country’s establishment. But the announcement on Monday, Feb. 22, 2021, received a cool reception from advocacy groups that said the government had failed to apologize or accept responsibility for the affair.

Si fanno sempre più intense le pressioni, all’interno della maggioranza del governo Draghi, per rimuovere il divieto imposto alla fornitura di sistemi d’arma prodotti dalla Rwm Italia con destinazione Arabia Saudita e Emirati Arabi uniti.
La decisione presa dall’allora governo Conte 2 ha, tra l’altro, così fortemente contrariato gli Emirati Arabi uniti da indurli a chiedere ai militari italiani di lasciare la locale base di al-Minhad.

Nel frattempo arrivano, da parte dell’Unicef, allarmanti aggiornamenti sulla situazione in Yemen, teatro del conflitto armato in corso dal 2015 che vede tra gli attori principali la coalizione militare a guida saudita.
Secondo l’Unicef, «a sei anni dall’inizio del devastante conflitto in Yemen, ancora in corso, l’istruzione dei bambini nel Paese ne è diventata una delle maggiori vittime. Poco più di 2 milioni di ragazze e ragazzi in età scolare non stanno andando a scuola, a causa della povertà, del conflitto e della mancanza di opportunità che compromettono la loro istruzione. Questo numero è raddoppiato rispetto ai bambini che non frequentavano la scuola nel 2015, quando il conflitto è cominciato».

Le scuole come gli ospedali, come riportano i rapporti Onu e delle Ong presenti, continuano ad essere colpiti pur non rappresentando degli obiettivi militari, violando così il diritto umanitario internazionale e provocando vittime civili innocenti.
